ESSER FUNDS OVERVIEW (English)
Local stakeholders were asked to submit their views on needs Premont ISD should address with federal funding from COVID-19 relief bills passed by the U.S. Congress.
In 2020 and 2021, Congress passed three stimulus bills that provide funding to the Elementary and Secondary Emergency Education Relief – or ESSER – Fund. States, including Texas, are now distributing portions of those funds to local education agencies such as Premont ISD and other school districts. The American Rescue Plan passed in March 2021 provided supplemental funding known as ESSER III, and education agencies are in the process of determining how to spend that funding in meaningful, evidence-based manners.
As required by ESSER III grant guidelines, Premont ISD is now seeking stakeholder input to prepare to address the following needs of students and staff:
Community feedback in these four areas serves vital planning and preparation purposes as the district strives to meet the needs of its learning community.
A public hearing was held on Monday, Jun14, 2021 to allow input from stakeholders.
